2400: Xenolith

Scattered across the worlds, ancient relics known as Xenoliths taught countless species how to travel the stars, unlock psychic potential, and join the galactic community. But now, they hum with a strange signal from darkspace, awakening untold dangers. Even as some still struggle for power, the Council of Worlds has charged your crew to unify and protect us all….

Xenolith is a super-slim, self-contained, lo-fi sci-fi RPG about a multi-species crew saving the interstellar community from the ancient relics they’ve long relied upon. It’s inspired by Mass Effect and A Fire Upon the Deep, and built with the same rules as the free 24XX SRD. It’s 3 pages and a cover, fitting on two sides of a letter-sized page.

What is 2400? 2400 is lo-fi sci-fi. It’s centuries in the future, and it’s a decades-old modem that screams like a dying robot when it connects to the net. It’s a space ship with an FTL drive, artificial gravity, and a flickering display you gotta tap a few times to see the jump coordinates. It’s hacking something together with whatever cheap materials you have on hand, ignoring the rules until you need them, banging out something that might not sound finished, but definitely sounds fun. It’s a series of micro RPGs that might all be in the same setting, unless they aren’t.
